-span. host: are you in an area affected by sandy. caller: the area where i live on the upper east side, we are doing ok. but downtown manhattan is doing better now. the understand they are starting to get their electricity back. we are ok on the upper east side. host: are there concerns about how people might be affected with election day? caller: not in this neighborhood. i am sure there are in some neighborhoods. they are talking about making the arrangements either through having generators, or the election booths or bringing back the old system of voting, i guess mechanical. host: when it comes to house and senate elections, what are you looking at? caller: tomblin to vote straight democratic ticket down the line -- i am going to vote straight democratic ticket down . in congress, senate and president, all of the individuals all over and over bolling to the religious rights against abortion rights. they are bowing to the rich people. they are against slightly higher taxation. back to the clinton 4% increase. i know wealthy people in this town. pan on the other side of the country that
anything anymore. that is your this country is headed. host: were you affected by hurricane sandy up in beverly, new jersey? and what is your feeling about chris christie? caller: governor chris christie, i was not affected, just the power was out for a day. we did not get a whole lot of damage in my area. but governor chris christie -- if he has to go to the government to get help, that is what fema is there for. fema is there to help the state with catastrophes. host: greta. host: in montana, that race has not been called, results with more than half of the vote counted early this morning, they show that jon tester holds a five point lead over denny. 48% to 45%. the most expensive race in montana history. over $40 million is the tablet. moving on to north dakota, this has not been called either. the democratic challenger there it is tied 50% to 50%. we will continue to watch this race and let you know how it turns out. moving on to arizona. these are some of the closely watched senate races. jeff flake wins in that state, 50% over richard handpicked by president obama to ron. and t
view, katrina, you saw it, sandy give some impetus to dealing with climate change. i said, in new york, we will pay for climate change one way or another. we can pay for it after each natural disaster -- in new york, we have had three or 4100-year disasters -- or four 100-year disasters. irene, sandy. it will give some impetus to deal with climate change. even if we cannot reach compromise on that, there are lots of things that we can reach compromise on and that would be on the agenda. the fourth thing i put on the agenda, i talked about earlier in reference to your question. maybe we can get some real financial reform. republicans are beginning to rethink super pacs. they have not produced the positive results they hope for and they have produced negative results that they did not expect. >> if a deal is reached before the end of the year, does that remove the need for tax reform, more comprehensive tax reform next year? >> my view is that corporate tax reform should be treated separately. why? to make corporate tax reform work, you should not have revenue increases. you are putting
the federal government to help our area it is fascinating. host: were you affected by hurricane sandy there? caller: the lower part of queens was affected. we have many friends and we talk to each other daily. what i like about this man is we know we should not agree with obama 100%. the alternative we have an hour -- romney lying about all of the records. host: we showed you mitt romney's even in englewood, colorado in a little bit. the president working the rope line in bristow, virginia. jiffy lube live the name of the auditorium. this is jill in littleton, colorado. go ahead. caller: hi. i would just like to say that i completely support obama. i lost my job in 2007. instead of laying down and crying, i pulled up my bootstraps, i opened the business in construction. i employ nine people. my son was able to go to college. he now makes a good income. he will one day be middle class. i would like to sit thank you, obama. i'm behind you 100%. host: president obama working his way through the rope line as we continue to take your calls. it will be another busy day tomorrow on the campaign tr
wins or a close race in the an end. host: hurricane sandy -- does that help or hurt the president? people are complaining that the response has not been quick enough. guest: if held to be president a little bit. -- ti -- it helped the president a little bit. the cake is still bake. there are not a lot of undecided voters. i do not think it changed anything. host: rick is on the line from massachusetts on the independent line. good morning. caller: i think all poles are an absolute joke. it depends on -- polls are an absolute joke. the questions posed are going to be toward the end of achieving the goal of the pollster. it depends on how the question is asked. the answer can be spun in the way he wants. the university of boulder has actual numbers as opposed to opinion. i do not give my opinion to the pollsters because i do not know how they are going to skew them. host: can you give us your opinion? who you think is going to win? caller: i believe it is going to be mitt romney. all the jobs the president wants to create art taxpayer funded. he does that answer the question -- are
of hurricane sandy on the election. our polling showed there was an impact. our final poll showed obama with 57% and romney with 47%. we had a dead tie a week earlier. the only intervening events at that time was sandy and obama got 70% approval for his handling of the situation. a plurality of romney supporters also approved. i think in the end, it was modest. i don't think it really to hit one way or the other. i think obama had been edging a little bit had prior to the hurricane. the last two debates, not as important as the first debate. never is, but obama had not only stemmed from the's momentum following the first debate but also had developed his own. in the end, it probably helped him. the atmospherics and symbols of chris christie embracing him, but it was on the margins. may have helped in the popular vote in the northeast. we did see a big swing 4 obama elite and northeast. in our final poll, he was ahead even more. >> whenever a president can appear presidential, it's good. >> multiple other things can help him. michael bloomberg's endorsement which technically was not exactly stor
of several states still dealing with fallout from hurricane sandy. new york is another. here is the story from "the new york times." telling the damage from a brutal storm, the governor will be asking the federal governor -- government for $30 billion in disaster aid for areas ravaged by hurricane sandy. here are some of the more costly expenses. host: that is a picture of governor cuomo with members of the new york fire department special operations, still dealing with clean up and recovery efforts in new york. from go now to barbara, missouri. did i get the name right there, barbara? caller: it is [unintelligible] host: sorry about that. caller: my comment is more about the investigation itself. who authorized this? sounds like this woman had her friend, an fbi agent, start reading e-mails. the other thing that sounded strange to me about it was that these fbi agents spoke directly to eric cantor in the house. is there not something like a chain of command? where fbi agents who are at superiors would have gone to their superiors? sounds like kind of an excuse to get into his e-mails. i
hurricane sandy hit the northeast. stronghold for democrats that appeared destined to depress turn out for the president in some of his largest states. they said, we're just not thinking about the popular vote right now we're only focused on our battleground states. but something they're going to have to think about a lot more if these totals hold. >> pelley: thank you very much. let's switch over to jan crawford at romney headquarters in boston. certainly looking like a very different scene in boston, jan? >> reporter: it has been for the past couple hours there really has not been any good news for this crowd tonight. of course very quiet as you can imagine in this room. the questions now, of course, going to begin for the romney cam main what happened, why, for example didn't respond to some of the negative attacks over the summer allowing obama campaign to define him, particularly some of those battleground states with his work at bank capital. positions on auto industry bail out that really hurt him. people here believe, we're raising questions about that in recent weeks. when w
play ad big role in this election. shortening the convention in tampa and then sandy at the end probably did have an impact. i don't know that, it is easy to measure that impact but paul and i talked about, among the voters who decided at the last minute, voters who decided in the last seven days, barack obama actually won a majority, which was a huge surprise to political scientists around the country who will tell you where you have incumbent and challenger, the challenger picks up the majority of last-minnesotaers and so-called undecided voters because they're not happy with the status quo but they wait until the end to decide. in this case they actually broke for the incumbent. sandy probably had something to do with that. but look, i think, it's a matter of policy. it's a matter of outreach and having right people speaking for the republican party. finally it is a matter of tone. i think again making people feel that this is not just an inclusive party. forget the party. these policies are inclusive. the way to grow this economy and create more jobs an opportunity for every
sovereignty or national interests. the reason superstorm sandy cause such damage in the northeast of the united states was not exclusively related to environmental policies and actions taken in the united states of america. .. >> if i can add one more thing, remember the beginning of the united states of america. economy of the this southern states in the northern states is very different. they were very different from each other. even today, the economy is very different. we found a way to deal with that and the regulators are the same is true in europe and china and india. same is the same is true and brazil. this country deals with gaps between the rich and poor, agriculture, and earthen industrialize an evolving in much the same way that we're going to have to on the global stage for a the problem has been solved and can be solved. >> host: good afternoon, we have a caller from new york city. >> caller: hello, i'm so happy you're taking my call. my question is this fiscal cliff that we are approaching. if president obama allows it to happen, what kind of catastrophe are you ta
